Project District 9
#1
Inspired by @Sarah initially and then @Cheltgirl, I've refurbed my starting 19L intoooo...... a shrimp tank!

It's really nothing fancy. Basic heater, some new substrate and a new light. This tank had been running still (no stock) for a while now, I was just putting a pinch of food in each week to keep the munchers going.

Moved the filter to Bertha while I cleaned it all out and redid the substrate. Chopped up half a Seachem fert tab for the dwarf grass. I did want to get some moss but none of the shops had any, so I reseated the hair grass that was in there and somehow still alive.

8 cherry shrimps later (drip acclimated) and boom! [Image: 6c55a7f77b8347b3a8af12861656626f.jpg][Image: c6da99d3bc4109abc655eaaa76c41a65.jpg][Image: ac844dc188784468ecc749ec09d24c12.jpg][Image: 91f70042bb9efd01cddf5217730ba1cb.jpg][Image: a80f46169249ccbf216572fb18c1aef4.jpg]

Yaaaay! The perfect little kitchen tank. Getting up in the morning will be so much nicer Smile you can go downstairs, put the kettle on and have tea/coffee, toast and marmalade and get a ten minute dose of shrimp escapades to start the day!

Comforting to know!

They are quite funny characters, way more life than the Amanos in Bertha, but then I guess the cherries have nothing to hide from
